That was two years and one coaching staff ago.
Since then, Lopez has added three more offers, and UCLA has hired Jim Mora to replace Rick Neuheisel, who'd offered him in the summer of 2010.
On Sunday, Lopez was back in Westwood for the Bruins' Junior Day, where he met the new coaching staff.
"Junior Day was good and it seems like Coach Mora is really turning things around at UCLA," said Lopez.
"I talked with him and I really like him. He is a real laid-back guy and I got to spend some good time with him," said Lopez.
Loepz had been to UCLA several times before but said things were certainly different this time through Westwood.
"What stood out was really just the change in atmosphere," said Lopez. "I could tell that Coach Mora is really jump starting things around there."
His Orange Lutheran teammate Christo Kourtzidis signed with Florida State earlier this month and another teammate, Darien Washington, signed with Washington.
Lopez said he's in no rush to decide and plans to take in a few camps and combines this spring and summer.
